Demons danger men

Demons danger men

It should be a fantastic game; the Demons are playing with great confidence.

They’ve lost just two games this season and both those were winnable.

We need to restrict their spread ” their ball movement has been sharp so we cannot allow them to run.

They are playing with great belief.

There have been questions about how we’re going to stop Brennan Stack and Paul Bevan from kicking goals, but that’s not our main focus.

We need to play with a defensive mindset all over the ground.

The players can’t allow them to score the way East Fremantle did against us in round eight.

Perth have a few tricks around stoppages, but we think we’ve got them figured out enough to counter them.

It comes down to our effort and energy at the contest, and if that’s up, we’ve proved we can beat most sides this season.

Given we’ve had two weeks off we’ll be taking a near full strength team into the match.

Jason Salecic will make a long-awaited return from injury. We considered bringing him back through the reserves, but he could have played last week, so we think the extra week’s rest has left him in good stead for senior football.

We might slightly limit his game time, but we’re confident he’s 100 per cent.

As always, we need to hear from West Coast and Fremantle before we know whether we’ll have Mark Hutchings and Josh Mellington.
